Hello and welcome to the Global Health Data Management Network.

This is a free network (register yourself here) for all data managers (dudes) with an interest in clinical research. This community area is managed by Data Managers - Lyndsey who is part of the ERGO group and Naomi who is based at MORU .

In our community we like to follow the mantra "caring is sharing"

Following Naomi's incredible research (SWOT analysis - stay tuned link to follow) into all of the avaliable data capture systems out there. We identified a need to create a one stop shop where data managers can find and share all kinds of interesting data management stuff. With your help we aim to share the following:

  1. Tools and templates 
    • Template case report forms, data management plans and data SOPs.
  2. Databox
    • Decision tree application to help data newbies, novice investigators or data managers who may need a helping hand to work out the best data capture system to suit their clinical study needs.
  3. Training materials, guidelines and links
    • Repository containing up to date data management guidelines, regulations, courses and training materials.
  4. Discussion forums and blogs
    • Super friendly discussion forums to mull over data management issues and blogs for informal data related chats  All inputs and comments must be professional and pertinent.  Any posts of a commercial nature that are not relevant to our users will be removed.
  5. Data sharing and archiving
    • Access to a storage platform to securely store and share clinical research datasets.
